We bring you the best of the lot.

Kevin Durant – KD 10 PE

Fresh from releasing his new KDX ‘Still KD’ special edition to mark the 10th anniversary of his signature sneakers, Durant entered the Finals for the first time in five years with these gorgeous kicks.

And he marked his return to the highest stage with a dominant performance, putting up 38 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists.

Stephen Curry – Curry 4

The reigning MVP came to play in Game 1 with 28 points and 10 assists. Take note sneakerheads, this is how you drop a stealth bomb, with no prior announcements, but by wearing them out on court, for the world to see.

Not only did Curry’s latest signature sneaker have social media buzzing, but he was also electric on court. And so there was plenty of fire to go around.


Kyrie Irving – Kyrie 3 PE

Irving has one of the hottest selling sports performance sneakers on the market. And he did his sneaker sales numbers no harm by planning a release of the latest ‘Obsidian’ colourway right in the midst of the NBA Finals.

But fans didn’t have to wait to see Irving wearing the ‘Kyrie 3s’ in the Finals as he wore a snazzy Varsity Red PE version for Game 1.


Klay Thompson – Anta KT2 ‘The Chase’

In anticipation of his third straight appearance in the NBA Finals, Klay released the Anta KT2 ‘The Chase’ sneakers. They have quite the shine on them, not unlike Klay’s smooth shooting stroke.

Thompson did his best work on defense in Game 1. If the sparkle on his sneakers is anything to go by, one half of the Splash Brothers will shine on the offensive end sooner rather than later in the Finals.
